5 JULY 2019

Former Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has been appointed to the Racing Queensland board as the organisation's thoroughbred industry representative.

Upon making the announcement, Racing Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said Mr Quirk brought a strong set of skills and capabilities to the role.

“As a thoroughbred owner and breeder, Graham Quirk lives and breathes racing,” Mr Hinchliffe said.

“He’s a regular visitor to the races and is highly respected for his knowledge and understanding of the thoroughbred industry.

“Mr Quirk is a great addition to the team at RQ, who will help to deliver the stronger commercial focus needed to grow and prosper Queensland’s racing industry.

“I look forward to working with Graham and the leadership team at RQ to create a more resilient industry for owners, trainers, breeders and the other participants who are the lifeblood of the industry.”

In late April, Mr Hinchliffe announced the appointment of Jane Seawright as a non-industry board member, while thanking Susannah George and Mark Sowerby for their time at RQ.

Mr Quirk will take up his appointment to Racing Queensland immediately.

Racing Queensland Board appointments:

Mr Steve Wilson AM (Chairperson;
Ms Sharon Dawson (Deputy Chairperson);
Mr Max Walters OAM (non-industry member);
Ms Jane Seawright (non-industry member);
Mr Dale Cartwright (greyhound representative);
Ms Margaret Reynolds (harness representative); and
Mr Graham Quirk (thoroughbred representative).

The former Transport Minister who couldn't grasp the concept that if you increase the number of passenger trains you need more people to drive them has resurfaced as the Racing Minister. Shows you what priority the Government puts on Racing. And where does he going looking when he needs another Board member for a cushy retirement package- straight to an ex pollie. Qualifications as listed by the Minister state" lives and breathes racing ". Met a couple of blokes down the Geebung RSL Today who said they had the same qualifications. Apparently they didn't get a call re the vacancy . Total joke.
